Explore Scientific 82 Degree Waterproof Argon-Purged Eyepieces uses advanced computer design, combinations of low dispersion and high refractive index optical glasses, and durable enhanced multilayer deposition (EMD) coatings to produce high contrast, high resolution, and superior flat field characteristics. The visual effect of these eyepieces with their long eye-relief and their 82° apparent field is truly a full-immersion experience. Your eye is relaxed, allowing you to easily use the “averted vision” technique to study faint details across a huge field-of-view.

Each eyepiece is meticulously assembled into precision machined metal lens barrels that maintain the perfect alignment of the optical train for years of rugged use in the field. To keep internal reflections to a minimum, all internal surfaces of the eyepiece barrel are flat black, as well as the edges of the lenses themselves to minimize the scattering of light within the lenses themselves.

Explore Scientific 82° Series eyepieces, with their 82° apparent field of view, immerses you in a very comfortable ultra-wide field that naturally promotes relaxation at the eyepiece. When you relax your eyes and take in the scene presented before you, it is much easier to observe for longer periods of time, and details begin to materialize that may not have become apparent to you at first glance. Another great benefit of ultra-wide eyepieces is the ease with which you can gaze, not directly at an object, but slightly to either side. This skill, called using averted vision, is especially helpful when observing faint objects because using averted vision puts the image on a part of your eye that is more sensitive to light, allowing you to see fainter images.

Waterproof Eyepieces Are Easy to Clean and Protect the Internal Lens Elements

All Explore Scientific Waterproof Eyepieces are gas-purged and O-ring sealed which makes them very easy to clean. You can even place them under running water and use generous amounts of lens cleaning solutions to remove stubborn layers (and sometimes sticky) of materials that nature and humans often subject eyepieces to. You can also leave the eyepieces out overnight without fear of them fogging up between the lens elements. 

Included: 

  • Explore Scientific 82 Degree Waterproof Eyepiece
  • Rubber eyecups that raise to the desired height of the user for optimal comfort
  • Dust caps to protect the eyepiece during transport and storage

Excellent eyepiece!

Had to find the perfect distance and eye placement when using but once I did it worked perfectly. Stunning views and the fact that it's waterproof is a huge plus! I'm very happy with this purchase
